The Alexander County Tax Office has begun mailing reappraisal notices to citizens, and most properties have substantially increased in value; however, that does not mean that property owners will have to pay an exorbitant amount of taxes this year. The Alexander County Board of Commissioners understands citizens’ concerns and will have significant discussions on the property tax rate during the 2023-2024 budget process. With the approval of the new budget in June, Commissioners have the ability to adjust the current property tax rate of 79 cents per $100 valuation to lessen the impact of increased property values. Please understand that NC General Statutes require counties to conduct a reappraisal at least once every eight years. Alexander County is on an 8-year schedule, with the last reappraisal conducted in 2015. Commissioners appreciate your concerns and understanding as the budget process begins.
